Really happy to share a wonderful review of between giants from blogger and writer Aderyn Wood – it was a great thrill to read this as I really enjoyed the analysis. It’s like a gift, to see your own work through someone else’s eyes – so thank you Aderyn!
Here’s a snippet:
Over recent weeks I have picked up the book and opened to a random page. More often than not the poems have caused me to stop and think. They compel me to consider things I normally don’t ‘see’, or to simply appreciate a mood or a feeling. Shelley famously said that “poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted.” For Between Giants the poetry is a mirror that prompts you to glean some meaning about the world, but I think every reader will see something different, and it’s not necessarily “beautiful”. Don’t get me wrong though, there is certainly beauty to appreciate in this work – particularly with the simplicity yet weight of meaning within the words.
